Tucker, Tunes & Trivia

Your guide to weeknight happy hours, dinner deals and entertainment on the Border.

Shorter days and cooler nights are the perfect excuse to head out for a drink and a bite to eat after work.

Happy hour is arguably the best hour (or two) of the day, but deciding where to go isn’t always that easy. Albury Wodonga has no shortage of great restaurants, clubs and pubs, the only question is what’s on and when?

The team at Border Cafe has done the hard yards for you (all in the name of research of course!) Whether you’re after traditional pub grub, or you just want to relax with a few drinks while going easy on the wallet – here’s our list of what’s on.
